Wow! I cannot believe that my daughter is already starting school. It has about nine years since I went back to school. But I remember it fondly and am super excited to be sending her to school.
For me back to school, time is all about starting anew and getting a fresh start even more than spring and new years. My love is related to getting to shop for back to school clothes, school supplies, and toiletries. Walgreen’s has been a go-to place to stock up supplies and toiletries for school. This year I found tons of goodies for young women starting school this year putting together a Back to School Survival Guide. Walgreens had everything I needed to build a foundation for a Back to School Survival Guide for a young women going back to school this year. I found Grab U by Kotex CleanWear® by U, Bic Razors, and Eos lip balm and got extra points towards Walgreens Rewards for buying over $15 worth of the products. You buy $15 of participating U by Kotex / EOS / BIC products and get 3,000 Balance Reward Points!!!
I’ve been thinking about making an apple keychain from the Eos lip gloss since I bought my first red one. I wanted to make it for the Evil Queen costume, but I could not figure out how to make a leaf last year. I finally figured it out when I saw a leaf jewelry charm. Let’s do this!!
Tools & Supplies
eos Lip Gloss
7 mm Jump Ring (with openings)
15 mm Lobster claw
Screw Eye – Everbilt #216 1/2 inch
2 Chain Nose Pliers or 1 Chain Nose and a Rounds Nose Pliers
For larger claw key chain, use 9 mm jump ring and 30 mm lobster claw.
Take the top part off the Eos lip gloss.
Screw the screw eye into the o in Eos on top of the Eos lip gloss almost all the way, but not so much that it pops through the other side.
Open up the jump ring using the two pliers that you have on hand. Here is a video on how to do it.
Put the screw eye, lobster claw and leaf charm on the jump ring. Make sure the leaf faces upward and lays properly.
Close the jump ring with the two pliers.
You can now attach the lip gloss apple charm to your backpack, pencil case, wallet, and even use it as a charm on a necklace. This would also be an awesome gift for a teacher that loves DIY.

I’m in love with DIY and EOS. You have NO IDEA how excited I am about this blog post. My creative wheels are turning so fast. I can’t wait to create my own version.
How adorable! It is almost hard for me to believe that will not be before long that school will be starting again.

I never would have thought to turn my eos into an apple! That is a cute way to use your lip balm!
I LOVE the apple tutorial for the EOS balm!! I LOVE EOS but sometimes they are so awkward to carry.
Ok, your article is great! I was at first skeptical, but I read on…only to discover you have a tutorial that I haven’t thought of that would make a fabulous homemade gift! LOVE this POST!!! Pinning for teacher gifts!!! Seriously, well done!
Ohhh my gosh I am totally going to have to do this! These would be awesome for a teacher gift.
Well that’s a fun project idea! I love the slogan on the tote too (had to say it).
Back to school already? Noooo! LOL. But I love this and can’t wait to try making it!
That’s too cute. I love EOS and I’m always searching in the bottom of my purse so this would make it much easier.
How cute is this and what a fun DIY project! I have a friend this would be perfect for! The question is, do I make one for her and one for me? Or do I surprise her with this as a present? Perhaps I will make one for me and see if she comments. What do you think eh?
Oh my! my daughter will love this Apple lip gloss key chain! I have to make this. Thank you so much for sharing
